Yes Android users, I’m aware you’ve had that for years, no need to @ me.

Meet Dutch Dutch is a 9-week old Blue Merle Goldendoodle, a frequent member of the “good dog” club, and lover of fetch. He’s named after our favorite coffee chain, Dutch Bros. Coffee and as a nod to Dutch Formula 1 driver (and defending world champion), Max Verstappen. He’s the newest member of the family, and we love him so much!
